270 is not a problem. With the right fuel it's capable of easily reaching 330/350 hp. Sometimes even more. But at that power level, reliability may be a concern, specially considering the 20is run way leaner than the 28is. Also, on the 20is ignition advance curve is steeper. +15 degrees is common.

No differences besides compression ratio depending on the country the car is sold.
